We are always interested in hearing from experienced scientists who wish to work in quantum information and technology.
We're an experimental group that also does theory. and we've a number of projects in the Quantum Technology Lab at the University of Queensland. You will have a chance to work with, and gain expertise in, a suite of techniques and technologies, including design and construction of integrated photonic circuits, electron-beam lithography, quantum dots, and photon measurement using both transition-edge photon counters and superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors. Prior experience in any of the following areas is valuable but not required: quantum information; quantum optics; two-photon experiments; cryogenic systems; precision optical experiments. Successful candidates will join an active team, and will have an opportunity to participate in all our projects. Ability to take a creative leadership role as part of a team is essential.
Typically, our Fellows have a two or three year fixed-term appointment at Academic Level B, with the possibility of a one or two year extension. In 2022, the remuneration package is in the range of $101,534–$120,571 per annum; in addition to this there is an employer superannuation contribution of 17%. For more information please contact Professor Andrew White.
Qualifications: Applicants will posses postgraduate qualifications (PhD level or equivalent) in experimental physics with a research project in one or more of the following areas: experimental quantum information, quantum optics, or quantum photonics. Furthermore, the candidate must have a willingness to supervise postgraduate students in experimental physics.
Experience: Demonstrated capacity for research in quantum optic/information science, through PhD thesis, published papers and conference participation.
* Ability to work as a member of a team.
* Ability to use and program computers for research applications.
* Ability to work closely with theorists.
Research. Each appointee will be expected to:
* develop and maintain an internationally recognised research program in quantum optics / information science;
* publish the results of their research in international journals and other appropriate refereed publications;
* present the results of their research at international and national meetings;
* participate in the academic life of the School including regular seminars on their research;
* actively seek external research funding through university, national and international agencies.
Teaching: The appointee will be expected to supervise postgraduate students as a principal and associate supervisor.
Administrative and Service to the University and general community. The appointee will be expected to:
* contribute to the strategic objectives of the Quantum Technology Laboratory, the School of Physical Sciences, and the Centre for Quantum Computer Technology;
* promote these organisations within the general community;
* assist with light administrative duties in the Quantum Technology Laboratory.
